Sporting Editor Intelligencer.
SIR:?I take pleasure In writing you
t<>-ilay, to inform you that I now believe
everything will be O. K. for us to
K- t the Wheeling matter settled in u
few days. I received word from the
street c.ir company that It would certainly
do all It could for us, and as It
has always said It would help us, It
now seems about settled that Wheeling
will be strictly 1n it. They state that
one of their reasons for delay has been
that the full plans of Che flew Belle Jsto
resort have not been made and our, location
there Is not yet settled. But
they assured me that they have arrangements
made for grounds that will
be almost us well altuuted us Belle Isle
1 irk. should anything turn up to keep
us from locating there.
You, of course, understand that the
question of suitable grounds Is the only,
thing between Wheeling and the Interstate
league. I have before stated that
wo want grounds where the players
will have a chance to show their abilities
and we also want a grand stand
that will give its patrons a good view of
the name and u comfortable seat.
1 have seen statements at different
times in different papers, saying thai
Jack Glasscock and Sammy Nichols and
other parties are after the franchise.
Now you might state that no one has
approached us regarding Its purchase,
and it may be a bluff to save a reduction
of salary if either of the men said
it, which I hardly believe they have.
The franchise could have been secured
very cheap of late, on account of the
uncertainty of getting grounds. The
franchise belongs Jointly to Armor
Ytfungman and myself, "but I am to own
It personally if we get located In
Wheeling, as I am to trade my Dayton
Interest# and obtain the "Wheeling franchise,
One of the (K'hiv'H In settling about
Wheeling Is the desire to get permanently
located. Every year that
Wheeling bun come into this league it
JiaB not been settled (until March that
they were to be a member and then
they come In with u nourish and you
would have thought they hod the pennant
won before they started.
Now the Intor-state league Ih organised
on the five year plan and X wife to
locate in Wheeling on the same plan.
No one year spurt for me. I believe I
have the ability and experience to enable
mo to place a team in Wheeling
that will win the contldence and respect
of all the patrons.
Special efforts will bo madfc to give a
teain that will l>n a credit to the city. [
cunnot at present readily give you a
list of players signed, but In a week or
two. when 1 get ground matters fully
settled I will keep you Informed fully
as to the players signed.
I hope that nothing will turn up to
interfere with the arrangements I now
believe to be about completed.

President Watklns that Padden will be Hi
with the team next season, eaya the ^
Pittsburgh News. That brings down the re
race for place to first base,third base and pi
left field, with the chances leaning to- g(
ward the conclusion that oven those n?
places have been virtually decided. Ut>- fr
leas Cancel ot first, Gray at third, and
O'Hagan In left, fall to dome up to the
fftundurd they will fill the positions
named, bo that the make-up of the regu- fr
lar playing aggregation will be Ganzel, fl|
Padden, Ely, Gray, Donovan, McCarthy 8t
and O'Hagan. Pndden and Ely, the only u
old members of the Infield, are the only
players of the whole team who ?lld not
hit above .300 last year. In hitting, Mc- bj
Carthy and Gray were easily the leaders, K
with .372 and .332, respectively. Every- Tl
body knows, however, that last year pi
Padden had an oft spell In batting, while \\
Ely wa? at a disadvantage because of H
bad health during almost the entire ?ea- w
son. There ?eemn to bf? just one "If' to
the prospects of 1X08, and that Is the batting
of the minor leairucrs, though iroodness
knows they could not do worse than v.

NEW YORK, Dec. 2??Dan Stuart, ji
who managed the Fltzslmmons-Corbett T!
bouts successfully, said fc~day that hi ^
would leave far the west and hoped that ju
he would secure the signatures o? both b<
Fltzslmmons and Corbett to article# of 01
agreement for a ring contest which he
proposes to bring off next summer, pitiably
in the stare of Nevada. Ife said cj
that as matters stand now, he does not th
untlclpate any trouble In getting Corbett at
to sign and he is equally hopeful of gain- w.
lng the consent of Pitzsimmons to meet ar
the big Californlan In tne rlnHh once ?p
inorc. Just what the." amount of the u<
purse which he would oflVr would be, Mr. j0
Stuart refuses to say.
Mr. .Stuart would like to have the contest
take place no*. earlier than next
July and said that he would like to ar- S1
range a meeting between "Kid" McCoy j vt
and Choynskl or some good middle- f0
weight to take place in the week of the m
Corbett-Fltz.ilmmons bout. If he can (a
rnuveed In making arangements for both
contests. Stuart said he would offer ?-x- | .
celltnt Induo-m^nts for the winners of .
both the?.^ bouts to meet hIx months | jj
Idter. so that in the ovent of McCoy and ...
FJtr.slmmona winning they could nettle I ?
their differences n? to their respective I 8VJ
powers by the year 1808. Mr. Stuart will I a(

would be no fault of his If the big fellows

NEW YORK. Dec. 29,?Wllllom A.
Brady, manager of .Tomes ,T. Corbett, at
to-night sent to the Associated Press J*
the following challenge to Robert Fltz- j,(
slmmons, champion pugilist of the m
James J. Corbett, dissatisfied with the eli
result of his late contest with you at
Carson City, and not believing that you TJ
ap' his superior either ns a boxer or a *'
fighter, and being of the opinion that C1
the majority of the American public '
shares his belief that he can defeat you Self
ev?r you are man enough ,to grant In
ldm a return battle on equal conditions. 171
has deposited to-day $2,COO as a first
deposit to bind a match for $10,000 a tu
side, the person or persons offering the
largest inducements to have the man- gu
ngemont of the contest. As you have Su
said to-day that &>ur wife St
ban withdrawn her objections to you <'o
again entering the ring, there Is no ivn- Jw
son why the arrangement should not
bo speedily consummated; for you, In Fi
my presence at Larson City, gave. Cor- au
bctt your word of honor that If fou ev- an
cr entered the ring again you would tfO
give him first chance. It is useless for ur
you fo attempt to deceive the public i
and try and boom your private Interests da
by attempting to force Corbett to meet of
some second or third rate boxer before He
he shall be entitled to your tlollce. Tl" hfl
will not agre" to meet Mnher, Sharkey ]

that ho gave you?the right to win the nit

thd i do not bellovo that you will dver iti

that he nave you then, and If ever he V|j
securcii the opportunity to again fan- \\

Greene county has a checkered- record
so far as It applies to Its developments
In oil for the past year. All efforts to S
open new pools havo been a oucccsslon C
of disappointments. First the Gray's r
Landing developments, then the Fonner
pool and now the Graysvllle devel- "
opment promises no better results. An occasional
fairly good well Is not a sufll- ?
elent guarantee In territory where so ^
much capital Is Involved In testing Its
qualities. It his been a theory quite ^
generally favored that a connecting link i
of producing territory would be found I (
between Graysvllle and Brlstorla, pay- \
Ing producers having been* found at
both places. It was on this hypothesis ^
that the South Penn Oil Company started
Its well on the F. Jacobs farm. loca- II
ted west of a direct line, and midway w
between the two points. This was re
garded as an important test and has M
now been drilled deeper into the sand
